Yes, this does seem to be an easy obvious solution. I dont have access to such 
a machine, but I do use zoneedit for my dns services and they offer something 
called web-forwards, but I think this has to do more with dns resolution than 
actual port forward. (I tried it, but it didnt work.) 

I'm glad to see so much interest in this topic, but since my programming 
skills are relatively basic, I'm not sure even where to begin to build 
something like this.
